Friday Folk Flashback

“Oklahoma Ponies” – Mark Knopfler

Last week we featured the traditional “Shove The Pig’s Foot (A Little Closer to the Fire)” for our Friday Folk Flashback. This week we thought we’d share the Mark Knopfler song “Oklahoma Ponies”, where he has added lyrics to “Shove The Pig’s Foot…”. The folk process in motion!
